An observational study of different anaesthesia techniques- Spinal Anaesthesia and General Anaesthesia for Retrograde Intrarenal Surgery

With immense improvement in endoscopic and laser technology in the recent years, minimally invasive surgery like Retrograde Intrarenal Surgery (RIRS) is becoming more popular in the treatment of renal calculi. To date the surgery has been largely performed under GA with very limited number of studies on regional anaesthesia for RIRS. The aim of the … Read more

Prediction of Spinal Hypotension in Cesarean Section: Correlation with Baseline Heart Rate and Postural Changes in Blood Pressure and Heart Rate

Introduction:Spinal hypotension is a common and concerning side effect of spinal anesthesia during cesarean sections, affecting both the mother and the fetus. Accurate prediction of spinal hypotension is crucial for proactive management and improved patient outcomes. The occurrence of hypotension is influenced by preoperative sympathetic tone, which, in turn, is dependent on baseline heart rate … Read more

The Effect of Warmed Irrigation Fluid on Core Body Temperature in Patients Undergoing Transurethral Resection of the Prostate under Spinal Anaesthesia

Introduction:Mammals and birds are homeothermic, maintaining a nearly constant internal body temperature. However, anaesthetic-induced inhibition of thermoregulation, combined with exposure to a cold operating room environment, can lead to postoperative hypothermia in unwarmed patients. Hypothermia is particularly concerning after Transurethral Resection of the Prostate (TURP) surgery, as it is strongly correlated with cardiovascular risk factors, … Read more
